This was an interesting and enjoyable course, but it should be removed from listings until some critical aspects are resolved : 1. *Section 2: Getting Started* - the course needs to be revised - it relates to WordPress version 3.5.1 and the current update is 5.4.1 (as at May 2020). There is *no longer* a need to go through the security process, which took me quite some time to find out through searching online. Also, I made the mistake of running XAMPP and WordPress from an external harddrive, which meant that I had to uninstall and re-install both. 2. *Section 4: Plugins in Wordpress* - I could not find the video widget referred to in this section. 3. *Section 5: Wordpress Themes* - the most frustrating aspect of the course is that the Program Files cannot be opened, which seems to have been reported by another participant previously. I tried to open them through various apps without success. As a result, I had to type all of the code required to build a customized theme, which was made even more difficult copying from the course screen, which was miniscule. If I hadn't had a small knowledge of coding, I might well have given up. However, I persevered over two days and was pleased that I completed the course. 4. *Q&A* - there are 14 of 160 comments unanswered - that's not acceptable. If these things are addressed, then I would give the course 5*.
This course is quite old (from 2013), and while some things are still the same and the basic concepts are the same, there are many things about Wordpress and the plugins he shows you that are now quite different. It can be a little frustrating.
I find the videos to be very informative and easy to understand. However, I believe the course is too advanced for my purposes.
I've built websites from scratch, but never had the nerve to dive into WordPress development because I was just very confused by the framework. This course was a good course for people like me, beginners. Good overview, explanations, and working example on how to get started.
Pretty good for the basic stuff. Would personally like a bit of a deeper analysis for the developing part but I guess it would scare off a lot of people. Pretty solid course to get a grasp around WordPress.
A bit outdated as it is a 2012 course without being updated. Improvised sometimes. In general, the instructor is good, he knows the information very well. The course is great, worthy of value, and deserves the time spent.
The Wordpress he is using is outdated. The website examples he is using is BASIC. It doesn't match the current market requirement.
hey, I love this word press stuff, kind of good to build small website for startups. Its straight and easy
The videos are a bit blurry and it is a little over my head (thought it was for beginners) but I'm plodding along.
The information is quite out of date. It may just be the versions that are used here vs current versions. But I had to modify the settings quite differently to get everything setup. Once that was done, this is fine and I am gleaning admin knowledge so I think 3.5 stars is fair.
Not only outdated, but I feel like I would've gotten much better use of my four hours by watching free tutorials on Youtube.
Not sure yet whether it's a good match. I'm looking at website design and management and the 1st chapter was oriented toward blogging
This course covers all the basic fundamentals of creating a WordPress website, from setting up the environment all the way to building your own theme. With more time on each chapter one could come out as an intermediate.
This training is outdated, but if you go slowly and research the topics you are confused about, it is perfect. I downloaded Word Press version 5.03.
it's OK, but words like "plugin" aren't well defined in the intro and the blogging section doesn't use much imagery to show what the teacher is talking about. More pics would help. Even though the first set of slides is an overview - telling what will be covered in the course - words like "plugin" might as well be in another language, so defining a "plugin," and other specific technical terms, up front would be really helpful. Just a definition and an example. Otherwise, all I know is that later we'll be talking about Jaberwocky, because the word "plugin" at my stage is meaningless, just as the word Jaberwocky is.
